    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Bear in the Big Blue House guide at TV.com!
    Bear in the Big Blue House recently returned to Playhouse Disney with a new episode week, airing from April 24-28, 2006. The new episodes have ended now, but you can still catch repeats of the fourth season of the program (including the new episodes) on weekends.
    This guide is in the process of being updated! Keep watching for more episode summaries and other details.
    Bear in the Big Blue House is a very popular children's show based on a bear that learns and explores through the lessons of each episode! With help from his friends Luna, Tutter, Shadow, Pip & Pop, Treelo and Ojo, Bear takes us into a world of imagination as we learn new things like music, dancing, and colors!

    In each episode of Bear in the Big Blue House, Bear welcomes viewers in and tells them that he thinks they smell good! Viewers then join Bear as he helps out his friends in the Big Blue House and joins them in fun-and-games. Tutter loves cheese and can sometimes be very opinionated and fussy, but he's also ready with a cheerful "Thank you, Bear!" when Bear helps him out. Ojo's a bear cub who definitely looks up to Bear. She can be a bit shy and nervous at times, but Bear and all of her friends help her to learn new things. Pip and Pop are otters who just *love* a good time. Whether they're hanging out at the otter pond or playing in the bathtub, these two are always ready for fun. Treelo, a lemur, swings from vine-to-vine, but enjoys popping into the Big Blue House as well. Shadow's hard to find, but if you help Bear to sing her song ("Where-o, where-o, where is Shadow?"), she might just appear with a story! These stories are sometimes completely zany, sometimes very musical, but always great fun. Finally, late at night, Bear always visits the attic to talk with his long-time friend, Luna. Luna and Bear reflect on the events of the day and then join each other in singing "The Goodbye Song."

    The fourth season of the show saw great changes, as Bear in the Big Blue House branched out a bit. Tutter began attending mouse school and the characters began exploring the neighborhood of Woodland Valley more. Ojo began riding her bike and went on journeys. Viewers met many new friends, but many of the same familiar elements of the show remained as well.
    Bear in the Big Blue House was a part of Playhouse Disney's daytime line-up for many years. Currently, repeats can only be seen on weekends at 6:30 A.M., usually of the fourth season of the show (generally excepting holiday episodes.) However, you can still catch Bear himself weekday mornings at 6:30 A.M. on Playhouse Disney's "Breakfast With Bear" --- as he joins preschoolers in their morning routines.

    Bear in the Big Blue House is also available on video and DVD. Look for a number of releases, most containing three episodes, with more possibly to come. You can also find Bear in the Big Blue House books --- both original stories and some based on TV episodes. Check your local bookstore, library, or online merchants. Three Bear in the Big Blue House albums have been released --- the third being a compilation of songs from the first two. A few other songs are available on Playhouse Disney compilation albums. Other merchandise is available as well --- check secondhand merchants and eBay.moreless

Rugby finally realizes that he can't be the Christmas toy again.

    Disney Channel (ended 1990)
    Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers was mainly about Chip and Dale's adventures in fighting crimes that the police think are too small to handle. Together, with the help of Gadget Hackwrench, the inventive and industrious girl mouse, a blue fly named Zipper, and Monterey Jack, a husky, strong mouse with a killer addiction for cheese, they match wits with evil scientists like Professor Nimbul and crooked cat underworld leader Fat Cat and his gang. This series first began on the Disney Channel in the spring of 1989, and then it had a long life on The Disney Afternoon block of shows. Main Characters Chip: The brave leader of the Rescue Rangers, resembles a pint-sized Indiana Jones. He is by far the most practical member of the team and his loyalty to the others never wavers, even if Dale does try his patience at times. Dale: He is much more excitable than Chip, a fact reflected in his fondness for garish red-and-yellow Hawaiian shirts. Has a fondness for comic books, science fiction and tall stories in general. Gadget Hackwrench: The only female Rescue Ranger is a brilliant inventor and created all the teams vehicles. The daughter of one of Monty's old friends, she is more than just a pretty face. Monteray Jack: Known to his friends as Monty, he is the eldest of the Rescue Rangers and was an explorer before he joined up with Chip and Dale. Has an addiction to cheese, which sometimes lands himself and the others in trouble. Zipper: A fly who hung round with Monty on his travels, he is the smallest Rescue Ranger. But what he lacks in size he more than makes up for in courage. Fatcat: As his name suggests, he is an overweight cat who used to belong to the first human villain the Rangers ever put behind bars. He is greedy, arrogant and short-tempered and is forever looking for some means of dominating the world. Meps, Wart, Mole and Snout: These are Fatcat's stooges. Meps is also a cat, while Wart, Mole and Snout are a lizard, a mole and a rat respectively. Professor Nimnul: A crazed human professor who is forever coming up with new devices with which to dominate the world.moreless

    Disney Channel (ended 1995)
    The hit Disney show Adventures in Wonderland ran for over 100 episodes on the Disney Channel plus winning six Emmy's! This critically acclaimed show is currently off the air. Elisabeth Harnois (My Date With the President's Daughter, One Magic Christmas), at the ripe old age of 13, played the role of Alice. WILL IT RETURN? Not with new episodes, but the show itself does go up for sale in 2005 along with other Disney shows like Dumbo's Circus and Under The Umbrella Tree. WHERE CAN I SEE THE CAST ON TV NOW? Teri Garr (Duchess) can now been see on ABC's "Life With Bonnie" and WB's "Greetings From Tucson. Wesley Mann (Caterpillar) can be seen on repeats of "That's So Raven" and "Even Stevens" on Disney Channel. Wesley will probably be on "That's So Raven"'s second season since he had/has a recurring role as a teacher. And don't forget Elisabeth can be seen on repeats of "Boy Meets World" on Disney Channel (which also airs 'MDWTPD')and on FOX's Point Pleasant. As for the other cast members...No idea =/ It has been noticed that the director for the upcoming movie "Good Boy!" is John Robert Hoffman, the man who played The Mad Hatter on the AIW series. It's highly likely that it's the same person. This is not confirmed though. moreless

    Welcome to The Babysitters Club guide at TV.com "The Baby-Sitters Club" is a 13 episode series based on the popular book series by Ann M. Martin. Set in the small, fictional town of Stoneybrook,Connecticut seven best friends run a highly organized baby-sitting service. The show follows them as they experience the ups and downs of babysitting as well as handling pre-teen issues in a family show format. Aside from baby-sitting, the girls experience typical challenges such as standing up to snooty popular girls, handling rejection from boys, and coping with every day issues such as divorce. The TV series was by far the best portrayal of the books. The show's strength lies in the girls incredible bond towards each other and the fact that they are in no hurry to grow up. They unapologetically collect stuffed animals, play dress up, and pig out on ice cream.
